Prestige Question(s)

Noob needing help again.

First off, what the heck is "Prestige"?

Next, at first glance, prestige is unlocked once a player hits the rank of 55. At least that's what I'm reading. However, I see players who are playing prestige, but at ranks as low as 16. What gives?

Thanks in advance.

Prestiging will give you a new rank (the emblem shown next to the number rank). In doing so you get put back to level 1 of your new prestige. Think of it as starting fresh but with the ability to finish new challenges.

Basically its to keep people playing the game, giving them targets and feeding the main draw that cods built around, levelling up. People just love to level up, its addictive as hell!

If you play LOTS prestige non stop or your just wasting XP - If you play a bit now and then, DONT, as you can just tinker around with diff guns etc, whatever takes you fancy.

Black Ops 2, you basically have to prestige. Older games made it more about what you want to do.

But prestige in Black Ops 2 is less like the older games, since you can always use everything in Custom Games and can keep anything you want each time.

It's annoying that they made everything into a pointless grind...

Thanks all for the replies. I was concerned for a while. I mean I was in a room full of prestigers, whose levels were like 20 somethings, but they were taking my milk money and wiping the map with a$$. It all makes sense if these are the guys whove peaked and started with a fresh rank.

Gun Out.
